Bokito is an Irish quintet, but from their sound you wouldn’t be able to tell that this is a band born out of shitty weather (no offense to anyone, but it’s kinda cold up there). Instead their sound blooms with sun-kissed fever and tropical euphoria that transports you to summer days by the beach. Their latest single “Love Gotten” is an Afrobeat-infused dance track where the smashing beats and gushing choruses glide you to party mode. Play:

In regards to the track, vocalist Moses explained that it’s “about desperately rushing into a new relationship when your heart has in no way healed. And the true selfishness that goes with hurting good people as a result.”

Bokito has been making buzz last year by playing at various festivals (Brighton’s Great Escape, LeeFest) and getting radio plays. Although they are originally from Ireland, they are now based in London ande have show dates coming up:

4/5 – The Finsbury (London, UK)

5/27 – Strongroom Bar (London, UK)
